    Kinesthesia - M.Arch.I first year project

    Hi Archinect!

    The kids did good. Here is the final project from a group of students in the first-year M.Arch.I. Materials and Construction course. They were working with fabric hinges and a geometry that allows for their full-scale mockup to be transformed and configured in a multitude of ways.

    Thanks for looking!

    Lian

    P.S. Congratulations to the design team--Benjamin Burdick, David Himelman, Wesley Ho, Isis Kayiga, Quyen Luu, Cory Seeger, Annie Wang, Jessie Wilcox, and Tim Zeitler--as well as teaching assistant Michael J. Smith and instructors Danielle Etzler and Mark Mulligan.

      Lian, this looks like such an entertaining project. Any idea on what is the maximum number of configurations?

      Thanks for posting this :)

      Hey! It might depend on how you count 'em. Some seem to be slight variations, while others offer totally different spatial opportunities. (Yikes, can't believe I just typed 'spatial opportunities.) If a student from the design team is on here, maybe they can chime in?
